7-Day Green Smoothie Prep For Healthy Mornings

green-smoothie-jars

Everyone has their own approach to succeeding on the Full Body Cleanse. Some like to make meals every day and some people like to prep meals for the entire week. We suggest batch prepping for anyone looking to save time in the kitchen. You don’t have to dive in the deep end and prep every meal and snack for every day of every week, but it isn’t a bad idea to prep at least one meal a week to help you stay on track.

 

Most people wish they could have more time in the morning. You never want to feel like you are in a rush, although panic is inevitable when you look at the clock, only to realize that you don’t have breakfast and you should have left ten minutes ago. The best thing you can do for yourself while cleansing is to prep smoothies to shave time off your mornings. When you have a smoothie bag ready to go, you don’t have to think about what to make and it takes less than five minutes to remove from the freezer, add to the blender, and blend it up. Plus, you get to eat a healthy breakfast without reverting to something that is not cleanse-approved.

 

It is best to start on a small scale so that you don’t fall off the meal prep wagon. The problem with being overzealous is that you are likely to stop meal prepping. Start simple by following this prep, which will provide you with one smoothie for each day of an entire week. That equates to seven breakfasts. The flavor of the smoothie can change by adding different quantities of the different berries.

 

Groceries To Buy:

  • 1lb bag of spinach
  • 1 big bunch kale
  • 2lb clamshell of strawberries
  • 1lb clamshell of blueberries
  • 1lb clamshell of blackberries
  • 7 bananas
  • sealable quart-sized sandwich bags

Ingredients For Each Smoothie Bag:

  • 1 cup spinach
  • ½ cup kale leaves, washed and big stems removed
  • 1 cup berries of your choice (you can mix all of them or use a variety you prefer)
  • 1 banana, sliced

Instructions:

  • Place the ingredients for one smoothie in a sealable quart-sized sandwich bag. Seal the bag and place in the freezer. Repeat this for the rest of the six smoothies.
  • In the morning, remove one bag from the freezer and empty the contents into your blender. Add 1 cup of filtered water and blend until you get a smoothie consistency. Enjoy your smoothie!

    Q: I've been taking the Full Body Cleanse for almost 2 weeks. In general, I feel much better. My question is if I can eat spirulina. and/or Ultimate Meal (mainly is Quinoa, millet, brown rice, yellow pea protein, spirulina and another natural ingredients) as breakfast or lunch. In case you do not know Ultimate Meal you can see it at www.ultimatelife.com Thank you. Ricardo. Your customer service rep told me after full body detox is good to take cholesterol formula. Is enough or Do I need to take lose weight tabs? after the full body cleanse? I am taking care of my diet and exercise 3 -4 times a week 2 hours each with stationary bike or tread mill and exercises with weights.

    A:

    Spirulina and Ultimate Meal are excellent supplementary products to take in order for your body to receive an adequate amount of protein while on the cleanse.

    Yes, take Cholesterol Formula (and Intestinal Cleanser) after you complete the cleanse. These products will serve as a transitionary period as your body slowly accustoms to returning back to normal routines.

    Q: Thanks for all of the information which is very beneficial I must say. My question to you is what's the best type of aloe vera juice to drink? Also I have heard that the gel from the plant can be mixed into a smoothie, is that true? Greetings! As far as the best brand I really wouldn't know as there are a few good brands on the market. Just make sure your aloe vera juice is at 99% pure and with no additives. Aloe gel can be added to a fruit smoothie though

    A:

    I personally wouldn't add it to a fruit smoothie.

    Q: Last week was my first week on the detox program. I have a question about the charcoal - what is it used for? I know that it is part of the detox program, but what organ does it help to cleanse? I have stopped all meat and dairy products with no problem- but I am still having a difficult time with the sweet cravings. Any suggestions?

    A:

    Activated Charcoal aids the detoxification process by helping eliminate toxins and heavy metals.

    For sweet cravings, you can eat as much fresh fruit as you'd like while on the cleanse. After your cleanse is finished, you may wish to consume Sugar Control Formula to address those cravings.

    Q: First off, thank you so much for your responses to my questions regarding my husband heart murmur and weed smoking. Secondly...I am on my third day of the Full Body Detox & it is challenging and invigorating at the same time. My newest question is...how can I make the fruit smoothie that you recommended for drinking in the morning? & can you send my a recipe?

    A:

    A few recipes are in the Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual.

    Use 1 cup of fruit juice (of your liking), 1 cup of frozen fruit (i.e. banana, strawberries, mango, etc.), 1 cup of ice (optional). Blend for about 30 seconds! Drink and enjoy!

    Q:

    A:

    Hi! Thanks for the question. The chia shake should be fine as long as the chia is soaked in the drink.

    Eating small seeds like chia and flax seeds can go through digestion whole and be wasted. Soaking, sprouting, and grinding before consumption increases the likely hood that the small seeds will get digested and their nutrients utilized properly.

    Hope this helps,

    Q: Dear Sir, I was told that you were going to be sending me an email about my situation. I've wrote you a few times giving you bits and pieces of information it seems. I was asking one of your representatives about surgery and from the information I gave him he seems to think that I didn't give you all the information that I should have. Well about 13 years ago a lump formed in my breast after my 4th child was born. For years it's just been there. In 2005, after a mammogram they found calcifications in my breast. They did a biopsy and it came back fine. Six months later they decided that they wanted to remove the lump and when they did they found a small tumor. Since then I've taken herbs and God completely healed me. Well after another six months the lump came back but I didn't want any more surgery so I looked up poultice in my "Back to Eden" book and found a poultice that I used. I mixed flax seed meal, yellow corn meal, and funnelgreek tea together and left the poultice on my breast overnight for three nights. My breast began to get sensitive so I stopped using it. About a week later I noticed that the ducted around my nipple was indented, soon after that my nipple itself went inward, then after that I noticed what I thought was another lump in my breast but over a short period of time the lump extended from my armpit to my nipple. Now that whole area is hard and red. I got an ultrasound done and it revealed that I have swelling and cystic form in my breast. They want to do a biopsy but I am against it from what happened last time. Now I have pain in my arm also and at night I can barely sleep. I am at my wits end and don't know what to do except maybe go ahead and let me cut my breast. I have started your Detox program and I know it's working on my body but I don't want if it's doing anything for my swollen tissue inside my breast. I have lost my concentration because I'm constantly reminded about my breast because of the pain. I am a full time student but I'm thinking about dropping out of my classes until this issue is resolved because I can't focus on anything but the pain right now. I went a different doctor on 10/27/08 and they did a cvc (whatever that is) looking for an infection inside my body. The test came back normal, but my scheduled ultrasound is not for another week and I've told them that I'm in pain and need something done now. But they said that's the first available time.

    A:

    It appears the pain is just too unbearable for you and as such you may have to give in to the surgery in order to get immediate but short term relief. I had a friend who experienced what you experienced and the pain was so unbearable she couldn't sleep. I felt for her and I feel for you. I think you must do what is necessary for elimination or reduction of pain first and foremost. The FULL BODY DETOX (FBD) is helping your swollen tissues, but it seems you mind is so distracted that you are in doubt mode and doubt is the subconscious will to fail. If you know you can't do what you need to do (naturally) to deal with this situation, do what you must for present day relief. You have free will here, Beloved! Please use FEMALE BREAST OIL and Drink FEMALE HEALTH TEA during your FBD.

    Q: I am on Day 10 of the full body detox. I have had horrible stomach aches (like a punch in the gut), that have kept me up all night, migraines and pimple-like bumps apepar on my scalp (also itch). Now I have welts on my feet, hands and one on my right knee - that are red, swollen and itch. It makes it painful to walk. Is this normal on the detox or an allergic reaction to something? When do you start feeling better because I have felt like crap, with no energy the last 5 days. I have a business trip I must make next week during week 3 of the detox. Can I stop the detox for a week, and finish week 3 later, as I can't afford to feel like I do on my trip.

    A:

    1. Read the article HEALING CRISIS on our site under "Articles."

    2. We don't advise you stop the detox, but if you must, you must.

    You are just very toxic and your body really needs this cleanse as well as future cleansing. Your symptoms state you are toxic and need to focus more on your internal heath. You diet sounds very acid-forming! Changes are needed in your life, especially in the area of diet.

    Health is wealth!

    Q: Can I use soy or almond milk for the smoothie:

    A:

    Unfortunately you cannot use either milk for a smoothie as you are not allowed to consume any dairy. Soy is not a natural food and most store brought almond milk is pasteurized and contains preservatives that helps maintain shelf life. You can consume almond milk if it's homemade. We do have a raw homemade almond milk recipe available on our website.

    Q:

    A: You can only have the protein powder if its all natural and does not contain any dairy or whey. Hemp seed protein, green pea protein and spirulina are the best types of protein powder allowed on the cleanse.

    Q: I began the ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN approximately a week ago, it has been hard to maintain the fruit and vegan diet, but today I took the blood pills & then ate a grape fruit but after a 30 minutes or less I became sick. Is grapefruit a good morning food? Basically, why did it not stay down?

    A:

    I WOULD ABSTAIN FROM EATING GRAPEFRUIT. THE GRAPEFRUIT IS ACIDIC (THOUGH ALKALINE) BUT IT WAS NOT A GOOD MIX CONSIDERING THE INGREDIENTS OF THE BLOOD FORMULA. EAT VEGETABLES INSTEAD BEFORE TAKING THE BLOOD FORMULA.

    Q: I am on my 3rd day of the fully body cleansing. I am definitely doing this to lose weight. I am a 52 year old, black, Christian, wife, mother to 21 and 14 year old girls, legal secretary who is 450 lbs. I am to the point now where if I don't do this I'm going to be housebound. I can barely move some days that is why I started this because I feel so unhealthy. I have a question about the nuts. I got all gun-ho and ordered $135.00 worth of organic nuts from nuts.com. I got raisins, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds, walnuts, pecans, pistachios and cashews and mixed them all up together (well I purchased 2 lbs of each but I only mixed up 1 lb of each together). Anyway, I was reading about how much calories are in nuts. Should I not pay attention to that because I was consuming a lot of calories in the first place or do I have to watch how many nuts I eat? I have put some nuts in a sandwich bags and basically filled it up and that is supposed to be my nuts ration for the day. I am also eating fruits and vegetables. So far the fruit have been grapes, grapefruit, red apples, pears, green apples and bananas. The vegetables have all been in a salad: tomatoes, celery spinach leaves, carrots, mixed in balsamic vinaigrette. I only ate the salad Monday night all the other times I have just eaten the fruit and nuts. I am also consuming approximately 75-100 oz of water. Sorry I’m long winded I just wanted you to get the entire picture.

    A:

    Thanks for the question, I can definitely help you.

     

    I am currently writing an eBook for www.dherbs.com called "Losing weight the healthy way." I have been a weight loss counselor for many years. I am also a health coach, personal trainer, bodymind nutritionist, and a vegan lifestyle coach. 

     

    When it comes to weight loss most programs want you to lose weight to get healthy. My mindset is to get healthy and lose weight. 

     

    In my health/fitness/nutrition coaching program www.theveganeffect.com I use a lowfat/high carb/ high raw/ nutrient dense/ high alkaline diet to achieve long term weight loss success. So far I am 100 percent in getting clients long lasting weight loss. If you are interested in my program please fill out the health history form on the side of the web page. We could have a free 1 hour initial consultation over skype to see how I can best help you.

     

    Nuts are best kept to a minimum if you use them at all. Nuts are extremely high in fat and have the opposite omega 3- omega 6 ratio that is optimal for health. Seeds are best as far as ratios are concerned. Also nuts are truly easy to over eat and cause your nutrient ratios to be off.

     

    A healthy vegan diet is a high raw fruitarian diet. 

    Example:

    Breakfast: green smoothie. (500-1000 calories of fruits blended with a handful of greens and water)

    Bridge: Dates and strawberries (500 calories) 

    Lunch: Salad with low sugar fruits (cucumber, tomato, squash, bell peppers) topped with fruit, beans, psuedo grains, 

    Bridge: 2-3 apples

    Dinner: Raw wraps (collard greens) with low sugar fruit and tahini

    Snack: Sorbet

     

    Hope this helps

    Q: I am about one week into the 3-week FULL BODY DETOX, and I have developed an extremely sore throat, similar to the symptoms of strep throat. The pain is fairly constant during the day and is almost unbearable in the morning when I wake up. Should I get on antibiotics to clear it up or continue the detox?

    A:

    Sore throat only means your lymphatic system is inflamed there at your throat. Gargle with warm water and sea salt and drink licorice root tea or lobelia tea. Read the article â€HEALING CRISISâ€

    Q: I am writing for advice about a brain tumor. My daughter, 14, was diagnosed two weeks ago with a grade II brain tumor (fibrillary astrocytoma). A neurosurgeon placed a "shunt" in her head a week ago. Speaking with a number of physicians in Atlanta that specialize in pediatric neurology, it seems our options are limited, and we've been directed to St. Jude's Children's Hospital in Memphis, TN, for a 6 week treatment of radiation and chemotherapy (tarceva). We know there are risks, but we seem to have no other choice in the conventional medicine arena. Here are my questions. What holistic approach could we take? The tumor is the size of an orange and is growing around her brain like a vine on a bush. It is also bithalamic, that is, covering both her left and right thalamus. She is an honor student, but we are seeing signs of some erosion i.e. she takes frequent naps, does not seem to know when to take herself to the restroom, and is running fevers. The doctors have her on steroids to help with the swelling of her three recent operations as well as something else. My preference is to try to the holistic approach first, but we don't have a lot of time. What are the time-frames associated with your treatment? I know something of this nature will take some time to take effect. I should mention that the prognosis is not very promising.

    A:

    Don't worry about time, just take a natural course. Chemo and radiation will do the poor child in. This would poison her. But this is you guy's choice here! I would give the child BRAIN TUNER TEA daily (2 cups daily) and DETOX TEA nightly. Stop feeding the tumor by giving the child bad food, i.e. meat, eggs, dairy products, refined grains and starches, etc.

    Q: Do you have any suggestions for a breakfast, lunch & dinner schedule? I'm making the transition to a healthier diet due to fibroid tumors. Currently I have broken my eating menu into 3 parts, breakfast - fruits, lunch - salads, & dinner - baked potato or any other heavy meal I intend to eat. Is this a good start? Any suggestions you can give on healthier meals for dinner are most appreciated.

    A:

    Please purchase our ALTERNATIVE DIET AND LIFESTYLES MANUAL e-book for the alternatives you seek. It's a great little resource, especially for new people starting their transition diet. You off to a good start, Beloved!
